CHÂTEAU DE LA GARDINE, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Cuvée des Générations Marie-Léoncie 2017

CHÂTEAU DE LA GARDINE, Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Cuvée des Générations Marie-Léoncie 2017

Old vines Roussanne. Gold, complex, intense...

TERROIR

Age of the vines: 60+ years
The white vines are mostly on Urgonian limestones located on the Western side of the estate. This provides wines with excellent minerality.
Exposure: Mostly South-West 
Altitude: 40-100 meters

VINIFICATION

Early harvest (usually before September 15th) to preserve maximum freshness. 100% hand harvest into small baskets.
The grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press right after the harvest. After cold settling, the Roussanne ferment in 225 liters oak barrels. The wine then ages in new oak barrels with regular stirring and racking. There is no malolactic fermentation and the wine is slightly filtered before bottling.

TASTING

The color is very dense, almost gold. On the nose, notes of mango and poached pear. On the palate, vanilla custard, brioche and salty minerality as well as a beautifully rich texture.

TO SERVE

Best served at 14-16°C to get the full expression of the complex aromas.

AGING POTENTIAL

Perfect to drink now, but can be kept 5 to 10 years for an evolution towards some even more roundness and fattiness and some gingerbread and mushroom aromas.

FOOD MATCHING

Boiled Lobster, Saffron Monkfish, Sauteed Foie Gras with Ginger Poached Pears, Duck and Quince Tagine, Truffle brouillade, Pears stuffed with walnuts and Roquefort cheese.
